Hei tiki

 

The term tiki is applied to carved human figures generally, both by the Maori and by

other polynesians.

The name possibly has some connection with the myth of Tiki, the first man created by Tane.

 In New Zealand, however, tiki is usually applied to the human figure carved in greenstone as a
neck ornament.
